The reason for creating this blog is I would love to write and communicate better.
Running has been my passion since 2008. I have written several race recaps here. I plan to post about other subjects and fiction as well!
I am happy to share that this year I ran a BQ (Boston Qualifying time) and my registration has been accepted for the prestigious Boston Marathon 2015. I am stoked for achieving my marathon nirvana after years of training.
I studied Mechanical Engineering from IIT Delhi 1979-84 and worked in the automobile industry till 1995, there after I was a freelance Application developer (Excel VBA, SQL Server, Sybase, MS Access, MS Office) and now I am in the Financial Services industry.
I have broad experience in Finance, Automobiles, Municipalities, Non-Profit and Development projects in USA and India. On the long term, I am interested to work in the Kumaon Himalayas. To enhance the condition of the Himalayan people in all aspects of their lives: the economy, education, health, arts, environment, and the community at large.

My race/ running results
I have read your ‘about’ and find it interesting. Please post some short fiction stories based on your both experiences ‘north and south’. I believe you got my point.
Thank you Puran da. Yes, I need to update my freewrites. Here are some I wrote last year
Good Bio! 👏
Please share more your knowledge on running, interview tips, toastmaster achievements that readers and fans like me would love to read.
Thank you Ravi, by your encouraging comment you have nudged and motivated me to share. Yes, I have notes of what I have spoken, emailed or tried ramming down people’s throats while discussing!
Saw Appalachian trail & was thrilled so to say. Can we have such trails. Or JAMMIES’s (OLIVER) Quick bites. Theses are very popular in India these days……
Let us discuss. We can look to create trail markers and maps. See you soon, Udai sir. I plan to move back by the end of the year.
